Company Promises to Develop Battery-Replacing Ultracapacitors in Electric Vehicles

For years, people have been thinking to reduce or even eliminate gasoline-powered vehicles, and switch to battery-powered ones. The the battery-powered electric vehicles' era hasn't already begun well enough, and now some are even thinking to replace batteries with something else: ultracapacitors.

Nickel Found to Control the Performance of Lithium-Ion Batteries

Lithium-ion batteries are well-known for their long lasting lives. However, researchers believe there is still room for discussion. A group of scientists at the Department...

It's no secret that Elon Musk serves as chair Solar City, the biggest play in residential solar in the US.  That puts the Tesla...

Battery-Like Bacterial Enzyme Stores Energy Biologically

Clean energy is now an almost achieved dream, especially with the newly reported Concordia University (Canada) physicists’ research findings. The researchers led by Associate Professor László Kálmán have...

Active Dual Functioning Electrolyte Boosts Capacity and Extends Life of Batteries

Scientists and engineers have been trying to improve the capacity and extend the life-span of conventional batteries ever since their initial creation. We often...
Graphene-based supercapacitor will revolutionize renewable energy and energy storage, says Sunvault Energy

Self-storing Solar Power Possible with Graphene, says Sunvault Energy

Graphene, in concept, has been around since the latter half of the 1800s, but it wasn’t until just over a decade ago that scientists...

New Nano-Materials Mix Boosts Li-Ion Battery Capacity

Carbon nanotubes have been in the focus of many scientists and universities studying battery technologies recently. Now, a group of Rice University researchers found out the novel properties of carbon nanotubes surrounded by metal-oxide arrays for use in lithium ion batteries.

New Special Nozzle Makes Methane Hydrates Easier to Obtain

Researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy found out a way to chemically enclose methane in cage-like ice crystals. This technology is much safer than current liquefied natural gas (LNG), which is transported at very low temperatures and high pressures.
Electric vehicle battery technology has taken the next step with a self-heating battery.
